Food-spiration: pitta pizzas

A simple alternative to the traditional pizza bases. Why not grab some leftover pitta breads, salad, cheese and sauces from your lunches/dinners and throw them together for an easy, satisfying – and cheap – meal. It’s so simple to make.


1 or 2 pitta breads depending on how hungry you are

Grated mozzarella cheese

Pizza base sauce (or any tomato sauce/puree you have in your cupboards will work just as well)

Salad leaves (you can also add onions, peppers and sweetcorn)

Grounded pepper

Chopped oregano


It is so simple that you literally just toss the ingredients on top of the pitta breads.

First step; spread the pizza base sauce liberally over the top of the pitta bread. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top. Sprinkle some grounded pepper and chopped oregano on top and to finish off add some salad on top.

Pop the pitta breads in the oven for around 5-10 minutes until cheese has melted and pitta is warm and slightly toasted.

Pop on a plate and serve on its own or with a side salad, crisps or use up your potatoes and make homemade oven fries to serve.

TOP TIP: for a pitta calzone why not slit open the top of the pitta bread, add all the ingredients inside the pitta and cook for 5-10 minutes. Voila!
